Thanks for that Ron, it was a heck of a crop as well. Just demonstrates the resolving power of the 300 F4 with the 1.4x TC.
Can't wait for the E-m1ii to come out, just think what that sensor would do!

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

This Slavonian Grebe in winter plumage was at Mutford Lock, Lowestoft this afternoon. Unfortunately it was rather distant and I had to stand on tiptoes to get the lens over a wall but it is the first time I have had the chance to photograph this species.

E-M1, 50-200 SWD and EC-14.

Nice Horned Grebe. They always look so drab in winter plumage.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Ahhh, so this is where the bird nutters hang out then Nice shots but I have to be honest, I've only gone through around 10 pages worth. Man there's a heck of a lot of shots in here. Nice though just the same.

So a few from the little E-M10 and Canon FD tele lenses 500 F/4.5l or the 800 F/5.6L

On the Makra river


Kiss my butt sunshine !! Canada Gesse



Don't look now, but you might be in trouble. Gull and Cormorant.


All in a flap over nothing, Cormorant.


I said .... drop it !!. Gull.


And yet, another Cormorant


Hawk eye the Australasian Harrier


White faced Heron blasting through


The view up the river

That better do it before you fall asleep on me

All the best folks.

Danny.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

A nice set Danny. I assume Canada Geese were introduced to New Zealand as they were to the UK?

Edit. There's also Communal threads for insects and flora for your macro work.

A fantastic set Danny. EM 10 must looked lost on these lenses. I assume you had to use MF?

Yes always MF. never found a reason to switch really. Its called find the box with the 800mm



Mind you, the Sigma is getting up there as well with the Pannie G2



The FF folks I shoot with don't even question the gear now days, so darn used to it I guess.

All the best John.

Danny.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

The 800mm looks in nice condition. I'd have thought most would be pretty battle scarred these days. It's even got the supplemental hood, most got broken or lost.

Brilliant stuff Danny, I'd better start looking for a shoulder bag for an 800mm!

Excellent set Danny.

We can only hope Olympus produce the equivalent lenses for m4/3 bodies.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Digiscoping is great fun. There's a guy at DPR using an Oly and Celestron scope on a floating raft for bird shots. Amazing what us wildlife nutters get up to

All the best, nice setup and keeps us fit.

Danny.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Here's a couple of mine, first a 600mm f/5.6 from 25 years ago.



And the OM 350mm with EC-14 and EC-20 stacked behind it from a couple of months ago.

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

A rather distant shot of a Great Grey Shrike on Lowestoft North Denes on Saturday. Too many 'serious birders' there, so I was worried that I would be muttered about if I attempted to get closer.
